Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!

Today I am overloading you with inspiration.  I hope you don’t mind.  I’m a very lucky girl who gets to design with talented demonstrators each month for a bundled tutorial.

March Tutorial Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Dragonfly Dreams

We started the blog hops to give our viewers and customers an idea of our designing.

This month’s tutorial is over the top filled with not only cards but beautiful 3-D box ideas.

This tutorial might be my favorite yet!

Here is a sneak peek of the March tutorial.

March Tutorial Bundle, Stampin' Up!, Dragonfly Dreams

 

This month I used the Dragonfly Dreams Bundle for my tutorial project.  I love how majestic dragonflies look, and this set gives you so many opportunities to create a beautiful dragonfly any way you wish.

Below you will see another project I created using this set.  Dragonfly Dreams is a very fun set to create with.

One of my favorite die cuts from the Detailed Dragonfly Thinlits Dies is the stack of dragonflies together.  I love the detail and how the change in direction.

Look how beautiful they display when using Glimmer Paper! I used the NEW 6 x 6 Glimmer Paper Assortment Stack (FREE Sale-a-Bration item) for my dragonflies.  This stack includes three colors of Glimmer Paper: Bermuda Bay, Mint Macaron, and  Sweet Sugarplum.

Tips & Tricks 

  • The base of the card is Mint Macaron 4-1/4″ x 11, scored at 5-1/2″.
  • The first layer is Watercolor Paper, with a watercolor wash using Pool Party ink.
  • I watercolored the Delicate White Doily using Pool Party ink.  Use an Aqua Painter to watercolor over the doily, then heat-set with a heat tool.
  • I used a staple to keep the ribbon, doily, and dragonflies in place and stapled onto a Stitched Shapes Square die cut.

  • I wrapped a small strip of Mint Macaron cardstock (1/2″ x 4-1/2″) across the card with my greeting.

My project for this month’s tutorial was so much fun to create.  I created a beautiful box and four cards to go inside.  I was a little giddy over the project.

Now, let’s create!!

Nailed It!

For the February tutorial, I chose to use the Nailed It stamp set. I picked this stamp set more for a challenge than anything.  Seeing how I’m not much of a “tool” girl.  It was the perfect challenge, and I took it one step further.

I decided to create one card that was more frilly and another card with a splash of man! Let’s see how they came together.

The addition of the doily was the perfect addition of girly I was trying to achieve.

My favorite part of this card is the greeting.  It’s not just a simple thanks, but thanks for building “ME” up.  I LOVE this!

Tips & Tricks 

  • Watercolor using Dapper Denim and Smoky Slate ink onto Watercolor Paper measuring 4″ x 5-1/2″.
  • Save 10% by purchasing the Nailed It bundle.  This bundle includes the stamp set (clear or wood) and the Build It Framelits Dies.  Click HERE to see this bundle.
  • Two pieces of the Urban Underground Specialty Designer Series Paper was added to the card front.  This paper is fresh with modern designs perfect for the man card or an eclectic look with the great designs.
  • Don’t forget to add the self-sticking Urban Underground Embellishments.  You will see these are used on both card designs.

The Man Version 

Tutorial Bundle Blog Hop, Stampin' Up!

 

I wish making “man” cards would come easy for me to create.  The fact is- they are NOT.

Once I got my groove on, the idea started to flow.

Tips & Tricks 

  • Using Crumb Cake cardstock, texture emboss the cardstock using the Hexagons Dynamic Embossing Folder.  Then die cut using the Build It Framelit (hexagon die).  Finally, attach the hexagons onto the Crumb Cake cardstock at the top.
  • Stamp the hammer onto Smoky Slate and Dapper Denim cardstock with coordinating ink and die cut.  Cut the bottom handle of the Dapper Denim hammer’s and attach to the stamped Smoky Slate hammers.

I’ve enjoyed working with the Nailed It bundle.  Surprisingly I’ve made more girlie cards using this set than cards for a man.  I guess a girl who loves a doily can turn any man set into something universal.
